I lost my disk and I want to re-install XP windows or migrate to a Lite Linux system.

Can anybody advise, where I can find to download the initial CD companion and reinstall the partition images to my new disk or how to setup a Linux system?

Thanks, ECHO_LAKE

 

I will make an investigation at them.  The news is not so good because even I put a bootable CD of XP Windows professional Setup in the CD-ROM does not see it.

 

After this, I passed with AOMEI an  XP image from another computer (a Toshiba Satelite) to the disk. This image does not work either.  It boots to the selection of booting modes and there either selection between "Normal windows boot", "safe mode boot" , "safe mode with command line boot" and "safe mode with network support boot" I do it flashes a blue screen with some letters I cannot see and restarts booting. 

 

Exactly the same behaviour it had with the bootable CV of XP Windows Professional Setup.

 

I would be wonderful if I could bring it to life again, I found an ATAPI Hitachi Travelstar 80 GB HDD and 1.250GB(1GB+250MB) of RAM. I cleaned the air cooling ducts and I checked this excellent display is brilliant with zero black pixels. This Pentium 4 will fly like a bird after this service.

 

I checked the BIOS it is very  old, I don't remember the version now but I can see if it is needed. This BIOS does not have a USB booting option.

Stefanos
